This is the trailer of the Emerging Women of Burma documentary which is launching the We women foundation campaign to raise awareness and seek new financial support for the pivotal issues women currently face in Burma. Many women in Burma feel impassioned and motivated to take part in the struggle to gain human rights for their people, however, they feel that without education they are pushed back into traditional roles that do not allow them the freedom and mobility to contribute. Young women often describe education as an opportunity to better position themselves to promote equality. The full documentary follows a group of seven courageous and determined women who, at risk to their personal safety and overcoming significant challenges, are doing pioneering work on major social issues within their communities.
